D.04.2 - SEISI communications Front-End design

The deliverable D4.2 on the SEISI Communication Front-End Design covers the implementation of the Smart Electronic Interface for Sensors Interoperability (SEISI) Communication Front End. The task involves the development and integration of a miniaturised smart sensor interface common to all new NeXOS sensor systems. This interoperable standard interface will be reconfigurable to respond to sensor specificities and monitoring strategies, and it will be possible to connect it to the majority of ocean observing platforms. The reconfiguration capacity will allow the interface to be tailored to fulfil the power, communication and maintenance needs of a range of sensors for a variety of disciplines. This deliverable justifies part of the work done in tasks 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3.
